Abstract: Basic concepts in the transition from allowable stress design (ASD) to reliability-based design (RBD) are reviewed. Critical issues related to RBD are noted, including their strengths and weaknesses. It is stressed that current simplified RBD methods need to be improved and expanded. Recommendations then are made for improving factor calibrations, addressing serviceability and economic limit states, and optimizing the foundation design process. © 2012 American Society of Civil Engineers.
